Perfect for kids
25 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a very, very cute movie, in a few ways, one way is that the dogs, and puppies in this movie are cute, and the other way that it is cute is just the whole idea and plot of the movie. I would most definitely say that the whole aspect of that pretty much nothing in this movie could really happen, makes it so adorable! I think that if you are a kid, or an adult, but mostly a kid, you will totally and completely fall in love with this movie, like I have. One of the best things about these dogs is that you can't be allergic to them, lol! I think you should definitely see this movie, puppy and or dog lover or not you will completely love this movie!
